The broke (but healthy) college student’s best friend.
Bulk size frozen vegetables, 5 and a half lbs retail for about $6.99. Needless to say 5+ pounds will get you and your room mates, and their friends, and their friends friends, through a meal or two. You can pick this big boy up at Costco, or a smaller version at any super market chain. Frozen vegetables are great because they are frozen when they are freshly cut and at the height of their nutritious value. They’re especially good for college students because they last a lot longer than fresh produce and you don’t need to deal with any prep time. Just throw them in the pan and start your stir fry.
